As director of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, I am proud to lead a group of talented women who are remarkably educated, accomplished and diverse. We strive to select and train ladies who represent the Dallas Cowboys fan base and the nation, and part of our audition process helps us choose positive role models for young ladies of all backgrounds.
Our current squad reflects a plethora of careers and education. Out of the 39 members on this year’s team, we are proud of those who have received degrees from the universities of Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Nebraska, Florida State and LSU. Local universities attended include UNT, TCU and SMU.
Some of our more interesting degrees have been earned in foreign languages, finance, psychology and broadcast journalism. We even have a DCC with her doctorate in physical therapy!
Our youngest DCC this year is 18, and our oldest is proud to be 30.
Forty-nine percent of our team calls Texas home, while the remaining 51 percent grew up out of the state and represent Arizona, California, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina and South Dakota. We also have two members of our squad who traveled all the way from the southern hemisphere and call Australia home.
